Today's demanding personal computing world requires more than just processor speed. You need the power of the Pentium D 950, offering the simultaneous operations found only in a dual core processor. This nimble chip features two processor cores each running at 3.4GHz with an integrated 2MB L2 cache. Intel's manufacturing process reduces power consumption and improves thermal performance permitting faster processor speeds without heat-induced failures. Users today want the most productivity and enjoyment from their PCs when running multiple applications at the same time. The Intel dual core processor gives you the resources to support both multitasking and multiusers. Drive your system to new levels with this high performance chip that gives you two processors in one.
Dual-Core Processing with 2x2MB L2 Cache Intel dual-core Pentium 950 processors have two complete processor cores in one physical package running at the same frequency. The cores share the same interface with chipset and memory, but each core has its own set of registers and cache for truly parallel computing. Each processor core has its own 2MB L2 Cache (4MB total) enabling improved overall system performance by allowing each core to have faster access to larger amounts of the most often used area.
Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) With Intel VT, one hardware platform functions as multiple "virtual" platforms. For business, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, Intel VT allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members using the same platform simultaneously.
Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Intel EM64T provides an enhancement to Intel 32-bit architecture by enabling the desktop processor platform to access larger amounts of memory. With appropriate 64-bit supporting hardware and software, platforms based on an Intel processor supporting Intel EM64T can enable use of extended virtual and physical memory.
Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
